Startup Ecosystem & Urban Innovation
WHY NEXT MANNHEIM?
Mannheim is a place for people with ideas and drive.
An inspiring place, to turn visions into reality.
NEXT MANNHEIM is the startup ecosystem for urban innovation – and for your next big step forward.
In Mannheim we like to rethink things – and make them happen. We want to shape our future through innovation, it’s in our urban DNA. Modern mobility was invented here – a great heritage and the understanding that innovation must be sustainable: economically, environmentally, socially and culturally.
We are holistically developing Mannheim as a startup hotspot. Cultural urban development and creative industries are just as important as the promotion of tech and medical technology companies or international startups.
Open-mindedness, entrepreneurial spirit, an exciting cultural landscape and nightlife, and one key advantage: the city is compact - and NEXT MANNHEIM provides strong support for founders with direct access to investors, international networks, small and medium-sized businesses and industry.
